was there was no significant demonstration going on outside that consulate area in benghazi. so she is making it sound if the extremists who were heavily armed came in and joined a ongoing big demonstration that got whipped into a frenzy and led to this attack. >> right. well, obviously there's still a lot of facts to be learned. we don't know everything yet but there is one group of people who are not at all confused by what happened and those are the people who attacked consulate and killed four americans. they know what they planned and what they did. even worse than that, as tragic as this is, is the signal that it is sending to al qaeda and terrorists and extremists all around the region, which is, that we did not have adequate security for our ambassador to libya. we didn't have adequate security for our embassy in cairo on september the 11th. and that official americans and private americans are vulnerable. tunisia is a good example. when they couldn't really take over the embassy they storm ad school across the street. they couldn't get the hard target. so they went after a soft target. i thin

in the consulate in benghazi in eastern libya, there is a cross border aspect to this story that is making right now in tunis. and another aspect of the story tunisia, like other countries are being hard-hit by the united states to stop the radicalism we see here in wake of the arab spring. they told me they did not see the tunisia step between the protests of the islamist and protestors the other friday that did knowledge damage to the u.s. embassy, and its compound and a school nearby where about a hundred american kids were staying until about two hours before the protest. there with us a demand coming from the americans that the tunisia act against these radicals. and there was a taunt in that too. tunisia looking to america to fork over half a billion dollars in needed money over the next year to payoff loans in this economy. there is a bit of a taunt there too by the united states that, hey you come through there and then maybe we can come through with this. back to the breaking news, we'll get a hard confirm when we get our crew on the ground seeing this. about a thousand security surroun
, and gratitude. the large demonstrations condemning this lascivious crime in the city of van ghazi -- benghazi and other libyan cities is the true reflection of a feeling of the libyan people and its feelings toward violence and extremism. libya will never be home to extremist groups. we shall always be a peaceful moslem country, one of moderation -- peaceful muslim country, one of moderation. mr. president, the new libya will be a place of hospitality, transparency, enabling women and youth. it will be a libya by all and for all at the same time. it cannot fail to condemn the anti- islam campaign and those defaming his profit. -- prohet. such campaigns increase hatred and provocation and attention among civilizations. they go beyond the concept of free expression. this makes it necessary for the general assembly of the united nations to adopt a covenant in order to criminalize actions that are insulting of the symbols of all religions. and we, as muslims, believe fully in the unity of mankind, of the brotherhood of man, and we express our support for dialog between religions and cooperation,
